We opted for the sunrise tour as we felt we would benefit from the knowledge of a guide, and we certainly did! Sokpee is a great guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to answer all our questions and made for an interesting trip. The tour was well-organised. We were the first pick up and they actually arrived earlier than they said they would. We were 7 in total: us (a couple), three friends and another couple. We reached Angkor Wat in good time but unfortunately didn’t see much of a sunrise as it was raining (bear in mind that sunrise view isn’t guaranteed). We then spent a reasonable amount of time at Angkor Wat before taking a break for breakfast. The place they took us to was more reasonably priced than we’d feared. After breakfast was “Tomb Raider” temple and Bayon. The tour included a good amount, I’m not sure we would have wanted to see much more after getting up so early. Sokpee never made us feel rushed and we did things mostly at our own pace. Would recommend!

The 2 day tour was fantastic ! Great itinerary led by Sokpee, our tour guide, who has extensive knowledge of each temple we visited. His friendly personality and professionalism made the trip very pleasurable. Our driver was so helpful, especially with the chilled waters and cool towels. He was always and smiling which made the tour even more enjoyable. The temples were outstanding and easy to explore. I thoroughly enjoyed both days and I highly recommend this tour to you.

What an absolutely beautiful experience on Angkor Wat tour with a tour guide David! The tour was very well organized and nothing has been missed. David is very lovely and informative guide. He not only talked about the history of Angkor Wat, but also shared information about the country, food and people. Not to mention we went for a local breakfast as part of the tour which was delicious! Highly recommended!

A tour of the most important temples. A great guide. He told an interesting story. Really worth

A lot of fun and informative. If you have a GoPro would take it with.
